Land of Sorrow (Japanese: 悲しみの大地 Land of Sadness) is the fourth act of Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia.

Plot

Wyrmstym 401 V.C. arrives, and Alm's pleas to Rudolf to begin negotiations for peace go unanswered. Alm elects to launch a counter-invasion of Rigel, and notes that the cold air feels oddly familiar to him. His first opponent is Berkut, who personally takes command of the border division to repay his humiliation in Zofia. Alm emerges victorious once again, and Berkut swallows his pride and smashes Nuibaba's mirror. An army of Terrors emerge from the ground and begins attacking the Deliverance, disgusting even Berkut and Fernand. Alm successfully dispels the Terrors by praying to Celica's charm. Berkut and Fernand retreat and flee back to the capital, where Berkut rages at his inability to defeat Alm to his beloved fiancée Rinea and hears a mysterious voice beckon to him. Alm detours to Nuibaba's Abode to kill her and rescue the innocent maidens she has abducted, including the priestess Tatiana. Afterwards, he makes his way up Rigel's west coast. Alm also recruits Zeke, an amnesiac general who was being forced to serve the corrupt Jerome by using Tatiana as leverage. Any further attempts to reach Rigel Castle are arrested by a rockslide at the Dragon's Maw.

Meanwhile, Celica begins her march towards Duma Tower. As she sets out, Jedah telepathically contacts her and reveals that both Mila and Duma are suffering from mental degradation that will destroy all of Valentia if left unchecked. He offers to release Mila if Celica offers her soul up to Duma to restore his mind, which would allow Alm to end his military campaign. Troubled by Jedah's offer, Celica and her forces battle the cantor Dolth. After his defeat, Dolth nearly convinces Celica to surrender, only to be killed by the masked knight. He reveals himself to be Celica's presumed-dead older half-brother Conrad, and convinces her to keep living for the sake of her friends. Celica's party confronts Jedah, who bids Celica come to the peak of Duma Tower to give her answer to his offer. Celica and her friends make their way through Duma Tower and meet Jedah, who shows them a vision of Mila's corpse with Falchion plunged into it. He explains that after Rudolf sealed Mila, Mila sealed Falcion, making Duma unstoppable. Jedah warps Celica's party away and removes the rockslide impeding Alm's progress.

Alm begins the final push towards Rigel Castle. At the Last Bastion, he encounters Slayde once more, and the Deliverance finally slays him once and for all. Finally, Alm besieges Rigel Castle and mortally wounds Rudolf. As he dies, Rudolf claims that Alm is his only son and begs him to take Falchion and slay Duma. A distraught and confused Alm enters Rigel Castle and meets Rudolf's captain of the guards, Massena. Massena directs him to Mycen, who explains that Alm is indeed Albein Alm Rudolf, firstborn heir to the Rigelian Empire. Alm was born with the Brand, marking him as the one who would save Valentia, and Rudolf entrusted Mycen with his care in order to protect him from the Duma Faithful and fashioned himself a tyrant for Alm to rise against. Meanwhile, at Duma Tower, Jedah points out that Alm's quest to defeat Duma is doomed without Falchion's power. Celica finally breaks down and agrees to sacrifice her soul to Duma to protect Alm.

Trivia

  • In the original Gaiden Shizas was the boss of the battle at the Rigel-Zofia border. The remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, has Berkut wholly replace his role. Shizas does not appear anywhere in the remake at all, though he does have some unused data suggesting he was possibly planned to appear in the game at some point in development.[1]
